- Rep. Adam Schiff called Putin's offer "yet another twist in the road"
- Schiff also pressed the case for caution with impeachment
Putin denied reports Wednesday that the President had shared highly classified information with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in an Oval Office meeting last week. He said during a news conference that "we are prepared to go there and explain our point of view to Congress if necessary."
Speaking on CNN's "New Day," Rep. Adam Schiff called Putin's offer "yet another twist in the road" and said "all of this gets more baffling every day."
The California Democrat also reacted cautiously to the news that Trump had reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
"I do think we need the director to come back to Congress to testify, in open session if possible," Schiff told co-host Chris Cuomo. "Then we still have a lot of investigating to do to determine what the President was asking the FBI director to do, and why."
